of information. >> who picked up the phone? maureen, was it you or your husband? >> we both did because we were told ahead of time that the department of defense was going to be calling us. >> it turns out to be the president of the united states. >> yes. there was a voice that said, this is the white house and the president would like to speak to you. >> i grabbed the other phone right away. >> i could imagine that you did. >> can you tell us a little bit about that conversation? >> it was very brief. he said that he had to decided to award our son the medal of honor. >> it was a very brief conversation for about a minute. he was at a loss for words, too. he wanted to call to celebrate and congratulate and then after an awkward pause for a second, he had to add posthumously. he was very gracious and a brief phone call and after his phone call other people would follow up and work through the mechanics and that was about it. >> when i read about what your son did and the bravery, you know, i mentioned a little bit leading into you, but it's been called raw heroism. he gets hit. he has a gunshot
maureen o'dowd, joe klein acknowledge an occasional pining for bush 43. all four said bush should be doing something he currently refuses to do, come out publicly now you in defense of the proposed islamic center near ground zero. all four presuming of course bush would defend it. yes, klein, column is titled, missing george w. if mckinnon had read the article, he would see the first sentence says, not really. the people spoke first, mckinnon claims. this big board he claims. who put it up? people, just people. business people. is there any other kind? why do people supposedly miss mr. bush? bush reduced the deficit from 412 billion to 162 billion in 2007. as if bush had a three-year presidency. he links to a graph which blames the 2009 deficit on obama. quote, folks long for his steady hand. they miss his warmth and emthree. >> we see his steadying hand expressing his warmth and empathy and here as well. we see him joking warmly about the absence of wmd in iraq. a lie for which under his steadying hand 4,427 americans have already died. we have seen these attributes since he left the whit
brought us john boehner's family. maureen dowd wrote about her sister. >> she did, her sister peggy. she writes this, when peggy left barry, despite being a washington native, peggy believed the dazzling young newcomer, obama, could change washington. but she has lost a lot of faith now saying she might vote for mit romney over alabama in 2012. he hasn't saved the economy. now he's admitting he made very limettle congress. you can't for four years blame the person who used to be president. obama tries to compromise too much and doesn't look like a strong leader. i don't watch m anymore. i'm turned off by him. i think he's an elitist. he does what he wants and then he tells tous do other things. >> mike, that's just a shotgun blast of maureen dows -- >> i know peggy, yes, i do. she's on to something. >> she is? >> you hear these complaints from democrats as well as republicans. >> i think she's on to -- i think more and more people are feeling, deservedly or undeservedly, you're trying to tell us how to live, how to do a, b and c. and yet, listen, sounds like a cheap shot. your family wen
the country around. host: all right. we'll go on to massachusetts, maureen, independent line. good morning. caller: good morning, how are you? host: doing well. caller: good. i do have a comment. host: ok. caller: i follow this very closely, and i follow fox news very closely, as well as your station. i do feel very strongly that there needs to be a stimulus for the actual taxpayer. i think that if president obama would give money back to the taxpayer, you'll see the economy get back. host: what do you think that would do for democratic's prospects in november, if he were to put forth an idea that would go right to the individual, an economic idea? caller: i think it would help them, because i'm not going to vote democratic. even though i'm an independent, i will volt as republican. host: what about a payroll tax holiday. caller: no, i don't think so, because independent contractors, we don't get paid unless we sell. we cannot collect unemployment. he needs to put into this system a stimulus package for the taxpayer, and i mean money, i mean like $15,000 to $20,000 per taxpayer. he can do

is quoted in "the new york times" in maureen dowd's column about sarah palin, she should not run and she won't run. that's jimmy carter's belief. that's also my belief. >> willie, is she going to run? >> yeah. i think she can't resist. he also got buchanan to say something nice about jimmy carter. >> that was the report. >> i bring people together. i'm coming out of this ahmadinejad breakfast with mika and it occurs to us after getting the transcript e-mailed to us that ahmadinejad was saying nicer things about israel than you were saying about jimmy carter. two hours after we're teaching about keeping calm that even pat buchanan felt sorry for jimmy carter and had to defend him. you're like karzai. you're on your meds, you're off your meds. >> i love you. i hate you. >> boy, that sounds familiar. norah o'donnell, you have done extensive reporting on sarah palin. it certainly looked like a political campaign ad to all of us. what about you? >> i think she'll run. i don't know that she can win, but i think what's clear in this is that if she does run, she will run as part of the tea party, no
